Sandmaiden Lingerie Collection
When it comes to handmade to order lingerie, Sandmaiden is well known within the independent lingerie market, and has been a staple to handmade lingerie lovers since 2009. Amanda Boyd, the designer and owner behind the Seattle-based brand, has been selling her beautiful crafted creations on Etsy ever since, growing to be one of the most popular handmade lingerie brands to sell on the Etsy marketplace.
Amanda creates beautiful lingerie and nightwear using natural fibers such as cotton, cashmere, silk yarn, and merino wool. Her designs offer something for every taste, from lace underwire bras and matching panties to soft flowing mesh babydolls to soft bamboo kimono robes. She has garnered a following of dedicated lingerie lovers and her Etsy shop’s popularity has grown consistently throughout the years as she adds new collections, designs and an array of beautiful natural colors to her collection, such as lovely olive green and rich burgundy.
Comfort is important to Amanda, which is why she decided to create Sandmaiden. She wanted to offer other women like her a place to find beautifully made garments that were not only pretty, but were comfortable enough for wear for both day and night. She believes in creating eco-conscious items, and sources mostly natural fibers for all of her creations. Amanda focuses on the inner sensuality, allowing women to feel beautiful in her designs by crafting what she calls garments designed as “a celebration of every day occasions”. With sizes ranging from XS-XL, Amanda also offers extra options on items including “petite” and “tall”, and offers bras in band sizes 30-40 and cup sizes B-D.
The brand offers a variety of different lingerie collections for each season, including their best-selling Nouveau bamboo collection, Ruffles sheer mesh collection and their Cupid collection of lace lingerie. Each collection is cohesive with the brand’s aesthetic but also works as a collection on it’s own, offering a full range of styles in each collection. You can also shop past seasons’ collections often at discount.
Sandmaiden was one of the first indie lingerie brands I discovered back in 2009. Back then, the market for handmade lingerie was just starting and Sandmaiden was definitely part of the forefront. Her beautiful nightwear and loungewear is elegant and comforting, while maintaining beautiful feminine designs that can be worn and layered as daywear or worn for lounge and nightwear. I love that the brand uses many eco-friendly materials and fabrics, and even hand-dyes some of their pieces. It’s such a special way to buy lingerie for yourself or someone that you love. By choosing to shop small through this woman-owned business, you are not only helping a small business but you are adding a lovely piece of lingerie to your wardrobe that is aesthetically pleasing and ideal for mix-and-matching with other pieces in the Sandmaiden collection.
While each collection stands alone, many of the pieces are so cohesive that you can mix and match the perfect nightwear look using pieces from Amanda’s different collections. Her Romantic collection, made of sheer soft mesh would look lovely paired with pieces from the silk chiffon collection entitled, Brook.
Sandmaiden has something for every season, whether you’re looking for a cashmere robe to keep you warm or a merino wool shrug for the cooler months, or are looking for something light and breathable like the bamboo romper from the Cathedral collection or the light organic cotton tap pants from the Myrtle collection.
Sandmaiden has created a shop for those who love both beauty and comfort, and her wide variety of products are suitable for any time of day and any season. You can shop the entire range of collections at Sandmaiden on Etsy.
